Friday, 01.02.2015 / 3:44 PM / 2015 World Junior Championship

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL – Russia coach Valeri Bragin knew no one expected his team to defeat the United States in the quarterfinals of the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship on Friday.

In fact, he felt that assessment was pretty accurate.

In spite of those long odds, Russia advanced to the semifinals of the 2015 WJC for a second straight year at the expense of the U.S., winning 3-2 behind 39 saves from goaltender Igor Shesterkin (New York Rangers).

Islanders' Pulock asserting himself offensively in AHL

Friday, 01.02.2015 / 12:16 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

Three months past his 20th birthday, Ryan Pulock is the youngest member of an already youthful Bridgeport Sound Tigers defensive corps.

Selected No. 15 by the New York Islanders at the 2013 NHL Draft, the Manitoba native came with a warning label: Highly offensive.

"You could see the potential [and] the upside," Sound Tigers coach Brent Thompson said of Pulock prior to his arrival in Bridgeport. "And you definitely can see his shot and the weapon that it is."

Over four seasons with Brandon in the Western Hockey League, Pulock scored 210 points in 261 regular-season games and 15 points in 24 playoff games. He finished among the Wheat Kings' top 10 scorers all four years, concluding his final season in Brandon 19 points ahead of the Wheat Kings' next-best defenseman.

Now in his rookie season in the American Hockey League, Pulock is adjusting to the new demands of professional hockey.

Super 16: Some surprising numbers from 2014

Friday, 01.02.2015 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

It would be pretty hard to not look back on 2014 and consider it a momentous one for hockey.

The Stanley Cup went to the same team that won it two years prior, but the Los Angeles Kings took about as different a route to a championship the second time around as they could.

When the Kings lost for the third time in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, they were leading the Final 3-0. When they lost for the third time in 2014, they had yet to win once. They proceeded to lose three times to each of their three opponents from the Western Conference, staging three incredible postseason series before besting the New York Rangers in five games.

WASHINGTON -- While members of the Chicago Blackhawks were appreciative of the opportunity to play in a signature game like the Bridgestone 2015 NHL Winter Classic and, as a whole, enjoyed the experience, it didn’t take away any of the sting of dropping two points in the 60th minute Thursday afternoon at Nationals Park.

The Blackhawks fell behind early, rallied and carried the play in the middle of the game but ultimately left empty-handed with a 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.
